For When I Fear I Am Screwing Up My Child’s Faith

    Beautiful and terrifying…

  2. Nate says:

    This is definitely one of my bigger concerns and areas that I feel most unprepared to lead my children. I fear that I will not do or say enough our the right things at the right times and send them in the wrong direction. Thanks for your words here. They provide encouragement that their might not be a specific playbook for this parenting task. I still need to trust and remember I’m not doing it on my own.

  3. Dad says:

    “Maybe it’s as simple as that. Maybe it’s as easy as keeping these conversations going, spurring them on by pulling out the children’s Bible, and sharing them in a way that excites and engages them—through story. Maybe it only takes making them a normal part of the conversation permeating our home.”

    Yes, it is that simple. Remember, you are just the sower, the Holy Spirit is the reaper.
    You and your siblings were all about the age Zeke is approaching when you were able to grasp the concept of your need for salvation, and who your savior was.

    “Since you were a child you have known the Holy Scriptures which are able to make you wise. And that wisdom leads to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.” – 2 Timothy 3:15

    But watch them closely to recognize when they are ready to consider making a decision. We remember those days of parenthood that you are now approaching. And as always, will be praying!
